Fall Tag

Hey babes, welcome to day 6 of FallTober. Since we’re almost a full week into FallTober I thought I’d do a tag post. So today is the Fall tag post and I am tagging everyone who reads this to do it too.

  1. What signifies Fall for you? I feel like as soon as the weather starts to become foggy and dark. 
  2. What is your favorite fall food?  Mac N’ Cheese with Bacon 
  3. Pumpkin pie or apple pie? Pumpkin.
  4. What type of music do you listen to in the fall time? I like listening to softer music like indie music. I’ll be putting up a fall playlist soon.
  5. Describe the feeling of fall rain in three words. Gloomy, cold, and refreshing.
  6. Which three things tell you that the fall season has begun?  The crisp mourning air, Having to wear warmer clothes, and The leaves changing. 
  7. If you could spend fall anywhere, where would it be? I have a few places I’d love to go to in the fall time, they are New York or Canada. 
  8. Pumpkin Spice Latte or Apple Cider? Pumpkin Spice Latte! I know it’s super basic, I go pumpkin spice crazy during the fall time.
  9. What do you feel at the end of the fall season? I think it’s a bittersweet moment. I’m sad about it because it is my favorite season, but I’m also happy because this means Christmas and my birthday are right around the corner.
  10. Favorite fall nail color? I have a few colors, but if I had to pick one it would be Essie’s Chinchilly.
  11. Are you more energetic or more laid back in the fall time? I’m more energetic. The summer heat usually drains me and I feel super sluggish when its super hot, as the weather gets colder the more energetic I feel. Plus fall is my favorite season so of course, I get super excited.
  12. Do you prefer S’mores or Pumpkin Pie? S’mores
  13. Favorite lip color? I don’t have a specific lip color, I really love dark cranberry colors and medium to dark nudes.

  16. Sweaters or Scarves? Sweaters 
  17. In the fall time do you love traveling or do you enjoy spending the season at home? I like doing a little bit of both. It’s the time of the year where you just want to cozy up on those rainy days, but it’s still the type of weather where you just want to be outside because it’s so nice.
  18. Halloween or Thanksgiving? Halloween 
  19. Do enjoy the colder weather? Yes. I never really used to as a kid, but as I got older I’ve grown a new appreciation for the colder seasons. 
  20. Fireplace or candlelight? Candlelight
  21. What is your favorite store in the fall time? Target.
  22. September, October, or November? I want to pick two, but if I really had to choose I would say November. I wanted to say October, but November is the month where it actually looks like fall where I live.
  23. What music do you listen to during the fall time? I like listening so softer music like indie music, soft rock, and sometimes country music.
  24. Do you enjoy the feeling of the cold air, or do you wrap up in a blanket? I really enjoy both at the same time. I love the feeling of being wrapped up in the blankets with all the windows open. It feels so refreshing.
  25. October or November? What’s your favorite fall months? October.
  26. The city or the woods? As beautiful as the woods are this time of the year, I’m 100% a city girl. I think the city has a special type of beauty during this time of the year.
  27. Silent nights or windy ones? What do you love more? I prefer silent nights.
  28. Would you spend an entire night in an actual haunted house? No. No, and nope.

  30. Hot chocolate or apple cider? Hot chocolate.
  31. What are you favorite pumpkin-based food? I have so many, but I guess if I had to just pick one it would have to be pumpkin bread, which I’ll be posting the recipe soon along with other fall favorite recipes.
  32. In your opinion, which leaves have the best color for fall? I like the orange and the yellow, but if I had to pick one I would say the orange. When I think of fall I think of oranges and browns, and also yellows.
  33. Corn maze or haunted maze? Corn Maze.
  34. Favorite show to watch in the fall time? Stranger Things. I think this show is perfect to watch in the fall it has a creepy Halloween/fall vibe to it.
  35. Favorite fall tea flavors?  In the fall time, I like to have apple cinnamon teas. 
  36. What are things you like to keep in your room in the fall time? In the fall I love making my super cozy by having string lights up, always having my favorite fall candles lit, having extra blankets and pillows to snuggle up in. 
  37. Favorite fall color? Burnt orange.
  38. Fairy lights or candles? How do you like to decorate for fall? I love decorating with both. To me, it doesn’t feel like fall without candles and fairy light.
  39. Favorite Halloween candy? M&M’s or anything with caramel in it. 
  40. Where do you buy you Fall candles? I mainly get all my candles from Ross or Target, every once in a while I’ll buy them from Bath and body works.

My Top 5 Fall Wardrobe Essentials

As you know my favorite thing about fall is the fashion. There are so many options when it comes to staple looks for the season. I just love the layered look and all the options for accessorizing. This is also the time of the year where fashion bloggers, stores, and magazines show you what’s new and all the “must-have” pieces of the season, which can be super overwhelming. You really don’t need to spend a bunch of money on new trends because they’ll be gone within a season or two. You should invest in classic pieces. Today I want to share with you what I think are wardrobe essentials for Fall that you should consider investing in.

 

  1. LEATHER JACKET

          

      The leather jacket gives off biker vibes, which is my favorite edgy look. It has been and will always be a classic, but they can be pricey depending on where you buy it and whether your buying faux leather or real leather. First jacket Nordstrom $150.00 (Faux Leather), the second Forever21 $42.00 (Faux Leather), and the third Abercrombie $280.00 (Real Leather).

  2. FLANNEL

    Flannels, in my opinion, remind me of Fall and to me will always be a Fall classic. They can also add warmth to those early still warm fall days. The first one American Eagle $32.00, the second Abercrombie $58.00, and the third one Target $25.00.

  3. FLATS

    I personally think that flats are great for any season. They do look super cute with leggings or skinny jeans. I believe you can dress them up or you can also dress them down. The first is Charlotte Russe $13.99, the second is H&M $27.99, and the third one TopShop $24.00.

  4. OVERCOAT

    Overcoats have become my new obsession. I personally think that they add style to whatever your wearing. I also think their so 80’s and I feel like those looks are coming back. The first one is Lulus $98.00, the second is Abercrombie $132.00, and the third is H&M $59.99.

  5. BOOTS

    The must-have staple shoes for Fall are boots. since they’re so many different styles I just picked the three basic go to’s. I will be making must-have shoes for Fall post later on, and I’ll get more into the different boots and other shoes. The first one is Nordstrom $197.95, the second is Kohl $$49.99, the third is Nordstrom $150.00.

 

Well, that’s my Top 5 Wardrobe Essentials for Fall. Let me know if you love any of these or what you think should be on this list. Thanks for reading FallTober post day four. See you tomorrow!

Guide to having a perfect Fall

large

Crisp cool air, darker days, and hues of orange fall is officially here. For those of us who are in love with Fall, I’ve come up with a guide on how to have the perfect Fall.

  1. Seasonal Coffee – Starting your mornings with the right cup of coffee changes everything. Now I know that not everyone likes pumpkin spice latte and I know Starbucks doesn’t make a vegan version of it. Find a seasonal spice coffee or tea that you love and start your day out with it, trust me starting your mornings right is a game changer for your whole day. I’m currently adding cinnamon vanilla creamer to my coffee and it has been everything. It smells like Christmas and tastes like the goodness of Fall and Christmas wrapped together.
  2. Set a Vibe – Setting a mood or a vibe is super important. Setting the vibe puts you in a flow with the mood. So setting the vibe means to put out your favorite fall candles, hang out some fairy lights, bring out the chunky sweaters, and decorate your space with Fall decor. After those things watch some Fall-related shows and movies while drinking your favorite fall drink and eating your favorite Fall pastry.
  3. Harry Potter – Ok so I know this one isn’t for everyone, but watching Harry Potter movies or reading the books just puts me in such a Fall mood. I try to at least read or listen to one Harry Potter book a year and I try to have a Harry Potter movie marathon every year.
  4. Baking – A Fall must do is bake your favorite treats. Turning on that oven and warming up your home with the smell of cinnamon buns or chocolate chips cookies is just such a mood.
  5. Fall Activities – Part of having a perfect Fall is taking part in the festivities. Creating memories with your family and friends is the way to make Fall perfect. Go apple and pumpkin picking, go to your towns Fall festival, and go get lost in a corn maze. I will be posting a “Things to do in the Fall list” soon make sure to keep an eye out for it.
  6. Morning or Evening walks – I personally love Fall mornings and I think the best way to really wake up is to breath in the cool crisp Fall morning air. Another way to make your Fall perfect is too just be in it and enjoy that moment. Taking morning or evening walks are the perfect way to just enjoy the moment and breath in that refreshing air.

 

That’s it for today’s post. I hope you’re enjoying FallTober, let me know what you think down in the comments. Also tell me what gets you in the mood for fall or what your Fall traditions are, let’s get to know each other.

Hello Fall (#FallTober)

large.jpg

(This picture is taken from WeHeartIt.com)

Hello Fall and welcome all things Pumpkin Spiced. Fall is my favorite season, I’m ready for colder crisp air, fall fashion, and the start of the holiday seasons. I love Fall so much that I’ve come up with a segment I’ll be trying out this year called FallTober, which means I’ll be uploading one Fall related posts on this blog and on Instagram, and on Twitter every day from October 1st til Thanksgiving day. If all goes well *fingers crossed*,  then I’ll be making it a yearly thing.

So I’m getting FallTober started listing all my favorite things about Fall and the things that give me that Fall feeling.

 

  • Seasonal flavored coffees (I feel like this is an obvious number one answer)
  • Fall Fashion – I LOVE Fall fashion! The big overcoats, the super cute boots, and the layering of clothes.
  • Pumpkin flavored everything – I feel like this is such a basic answer, but its true. It’s another thing that just puts me into the Fall mood. I was actually never a big fan of pumpkins when I was a kid, But as I got older I started liking more and more and now it’s essential to my Fall season.
  • The leaves changing color – I think this just looks so beautiful. It’s one of the things that just gets me into that inspirational fall feeling.
  •  The foggy and gloomy weather – I know that foggy weather can look or be depressing, but I feel like it wouldn’t feel like fall without it. It’s the type of weather that makes me want to snuggle up and binge watch Netflix or have a Harry Potter marathon while baking my favorite fall treats.
  • Big Chunky Sweaters – This could probably just be put in the fall fashion category, but I feel like it needs its own mention. Fall is all about the cozy feeling and when I think of cozy I think of chunky sweater.
  • Crisp morning air – Smelling and feeling the crisp fall air is such a mood booster.
  • Fall scented candles – Another huge favorite of mine. Smells are such a powerful thing, it can bring back a memory or it can just make you feel a certain way. So burning your favorite fall scents can put you in the fall feeling.
  • S’mores – I feel like I had to at least mention one sweet treat and I feel like S’mores, in my opinion, are the Fall treat.
  • Getting cozy on the couch with loved ones 

 

That’s my top ten favorite fall things that give me a Fall feeling. Comment down below and tell me what your favorite fall feels are I wanna know.

The Only Things You Can Control

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

We tend to have a need to have control over our lives, and if your anything like me you have to have control over everything and you hate feeling out of control. Unfortunately we don’t have control over the things that happen to us, but we do have control over how we respond to the situation. We tent to attach ourselves to the negative aspects of what happens to us. This could stem from how you were raised, this could stem from you seeing the reactions from the adults around you when you were growing up, or it could be the beliefs and ideas of the people you surround yourself with. This all really doesn’t matter you have no control over your childhood, but you definitely have control over what type of an adult you are. You have control over every decision you make and don’t make. We’re constantly making decisions everyday and every minute of the day. We make decisions on what type of foods we want to put in our bodies, we make decisions on how we see ourselves, how we treat ourselves, how we allow other people to treat us, etc. It all causes a chain reaction to what will  happen later that day, later that week, later that year, or what happens a few years later.

We try so hard to control things that we’ll even cling on to anything that feels safe or familiar even if it’s bad for us or are keeping us from reaching our full potential. I’m not just talking about clinging on to material things and people, I’m also talking about clinging on to thoughts and ideas. If you’re attached to the idea that you hate your job so it doesn’t matter if you only put in half the effort, because you’re only there to collect a paycheck. But what you truly want is a job and a life that you jump out of bed giddy with disbelief that you get to go to a job that doesn’t feel like work because you love it so much. You have to take responsibility for your thoughts and actions. If you have to work a job you hate because it’s going to get you closer to your goals then do it and remember why your doing it. Remembering why your doing something that is going to get you closer to the type of life you want to live will hopefully change your perception on not wanting to do that task or that job. If it just then you need to rethink how back you want that goal, or why do you want that goal? Is it something you truly want or are you doing because someone else thinks you should and you want to make them proud.

The things that we can control are the most important things just like choosing to love ourselves. Also lean into the bad things or the “bad days” It doesn’t matter what happens if we approach it with an open mind we’ll learn a lesson from that situation and come out a better and stronger person for it. Now if you believe that your beliefs and ideas are right or you don’t think you have control over feeling negative, or you think your not being negative you just telling “the truth”, then your mind will stay closed and you won’t learn anything. By not learning from you situation or your mistakes you’ll keep repeating them over and over, then you’ll fall into the victim mentality of “why is this happening to me?”. I don’t know about you but I rather be the hero in my story then the victim aka the damsel in distress. So let go of the need to control things, situations, and even people, and take responsibility and control over your thoughts, beliefs, actions, and ideas.

 

Things you have control over.

  • What you think about
  • What you say to yourself
  • What your thankful for
  • How your interpret situations
  • How you act on your feelings
  • How much effort you put into something
  • When you smile
  • When you sleep
  • Your physical fitness
  • Your mental health
  • Your body language
  • How seriously you take life
  • The people you allow in your life
  • What you talk about
  • How you take care of yourself
  • How you take care of your things
  • The kindness you give to the people around you
  • Your perspective on the world
  • What you make a priority in your life
  • The things you choose to believe in
  • How hard you try
  • How personally you take something

 

That’s all I have for tonight. I hope you got a new perspective on what you have control over, if you didn’t know this already. So take control over your thoughts and actions, and don’t let anyone have control over your emotions. Only you have control over you.
